JEN’s Blast From The Past Valentine’s Ideas

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen12 Comments

Wowza guys! I am not even going to pretend this month has been anything but crazy! Our family has now had BOTH the stomach and regular flu, on top of a mega-boom with my PR business that has me traveling a ton! And today Jen’s Guy underwent surgery to fix a cataract! Say what?! He’s kind of young for that, but  at least he can see again! Now because I am so busy, I was looking over some of my old Valentine’s related blog posts and realized there was some dang good content in there!

So how about you take a walk with me through some of JENerally Informed’s past Valentine’s-ish (real word-I swear) goodness!

DONUT You Want To Be My Valentine?

First, let’s take a little trip to donut land. Because if you love someone, feed them donuts. What you might also find fantastic is that you don’t have to make anything with this gift giving idea, plus I made the printable for you. Winning, right?!

  1. I remember most of these, but not the pasta and meatballs!? So good! Donuts. So good!
    I’m happy for you about the PR stuff! And sorry about the sick stuff. Our good friends took their kids (5, 9 months) to Disney when we were there. The oldest got the stomach bug there! And then was fine and then got pink eye. Then they got home and the youngest and the oldest got the FLU! Boo!

  2. Hi Jen, excellent that your PR business is taking off. I expect it’s you bringing all those germs back into the fold after your travels! I too am a believer that the way to any girls heart should be with a doughnut or two (or possibly even three)… Lemon cream or vanilla cream (or one of each) for me, please.
